Welcome to the Sleeping Dragon Hobby Shop!

We provide scenic modelling materials and hobby supplies to the wargaming community. Anything you might need to  paint miniatures, decorate bases and dioramas, construct terrain or even build whole gaming boards, we aim to supply.  Our range is growing all the time, so keep an eye out for new products. If there’s anything you’re trying to get hold of that we don’t currently have available, please get in touch – odds are, we can get it for you!

Our aim is to fill what we see as a gap in the wargaming market. While there are plenty of miniatures companies plying their wares, and more than enough companies selling laser-cut MDF kits nowadays, there are very few places that a wargamer can get hold of decent quality modelling and scenic supplies – that still seems to be the province of model railways enthusiasts. We want to change that by bringing those products to the wargaming market, giving wargamers a place to fulfil all their scenic modelling needs.

We’re trading at a number of shows in 2019 – even more than last year! We’re bringing new stock all the time, and trying to get to as many shows as we can – hopefully one near you! As always, if you’re attending a show and want to make sure we have what you want drop us an email or Facebook message and let us know, and we’ll make sure to bring it along for you!
